From The Campaign Trail: Michael McElroy at The Collider Asheville

Last night’s Collider event in Asheville was inspiring. Asheville has become the hub for climate change research, action and discussion. I am proud that this conversation is happening in NC10. Climate change is real and impacts our lives daily. As your congresswoman I will fight to protect our beautiful area from climate change and to preserve our natural resources. I will also fight to create jobs industries that have an impact on climate change, like clean energy and green manufacturing. We had the pleasure of hearing a talk from Michael McElroy. I have shared some information about him below.

From The Campaign Trail: Lake Lure

Lake Lure covers approximately 720 acres and has a shoreline of approximately 27 miles. The lake was created by the damming the Broad river in 1927 by the Blue Ridge Power Company.  The town continues to sell electricity to Duke Energy, although profits from the dam now come second to maintaining a fixed water level year-round. Recreation and tourism have become crucial to the town's economy. Lake Lure and Chimney Rock are beautiful and the people are friendly all year round. I enjoyed my time there today. As your congresswoman I would protect the beauty of the area and our precious resources.

Patrick McHenry wants you to believe he cares about small business, but his actions speak louder than words. He wants his constituents to think he’s listening to them and acting in their best interests especially when it comes to supporting small business. The story he wants you to believe IS NOT true.

Thank You Cris Suprun! Let's get out the vote.

I am excited to have the support of another candidate Christopher Suprun in Texas https://www.sendchris.org/. Chris is a candidate that believes in the true values of the republican party that have been highjacked in resent years. He is an advocate of my campaign on twitter. And I am advocate of him. We do not want polarizing effects on our country in this midterm election. We want to give the government back to the people by providing a rational option.

Gina Stands with Bobby in Gastonia

When visiting the polling place in Gastonia I met Bobby. Booby has had a tough time lately because he needed surgery. The ACA needs to be fixed while giving people options. My opponent Patrick McHenry wants to gut Social Security and Medicare and is not helping to rework the Affordable Care Act so that the people of NC District 10 like Bobby can be cared for. As your congresswoman I will stand with you and work to improve healthcare alternatives for NC1o.

McHenry wants to end Social Security and Medicare.

Republican Congressman Patrick McHenry said out loud what most Republican only say in private. He wants to end Social Security and Medicare. He told Charlotte Observer political reporter Jim Morrill, “I would rather have complete control of the social safety net given to the states.” That would end Social Security and Medicare. Most Republicans would probably agree. And that’s the difference between Democrats and Republicans.

GOP Women Must Unite!


In light of this I am saddened and to hear Rep. Lynn Jenkins (R - Kansas), {on why it's difficult to cultivate female leaders in the GOP.} say, ‘There aren't enough of us, and we've tried to do some recruiting, but again, when you look at the farm team, whether it is women in the statehouse or city council or women mayors across the nation, many of them have to be talked into it, as opposed to just feeling like they have something to offer.’
